Aberystwyth County Court Bankruptcy Information

When you have mounting debts with no prospect of paying them off, applying for bankruptcy is often an effective way to treat the situation and provide you with the chance to have a fresh start.

Personal bankruptcy will clear your personal unsecured debts, but in doing so it is going to stay on your Credit File for 6 years, which will impact your future borrowing during that timeframe. Another form of insolvency is an IVA, which may be best suited for those who have equity to protect, or a career which is excluded from personal bankruptcy.

If bankruptcy is definitely the right choice for you, then the appropriate documentation will eventually be filed at your local County Court.

For those living within Aberystwyth we have included the court details below. You only need to contact the court if you already have everything prepared, including your Statement of Affairs and Debtor's Petition, and you are ready to finalise the Bankruptcy Order.

To arrange a consultation you can complete this online form, and an experienced Advisor will be in touch to assess your situation and advise you accordingly.
